What happens to your body when you fall in love?

When passion starts, life seems to stop. What really matters is the presence of the other person. These behaviors are the result of a chemical cocktail whose main components are dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine, and cortisol.

Dopamine: It is related to motivation and reward. It helps you focus on achieving goals, and even visualize them. The neurotransmitter also triggers a greater interest in new things, i.e. liking becomes the thing that is loved, special and unique. Under this hormonal influence, potential flaws are completely ignored, i.e. love is blind.

Serotonin: Here the results of studies are not consistent. It is believed that in the early stages of emotion, its levels decrease. Low levels of serotonin are associated with obsessive-compulsive disorder and obsessive thoughts. This explains the desire to send messages all the time and expect responses to arrive every millisecond.
